Square Enix Delivers Games to PC Users Via Steam

Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of Square Enix® interactive entertainment products in North America (Square Enix), and Valve Corporation (Valve), a developer of leading-edge technologies and software, announced today an agreement to bring Square Enix titles to customers worldwide via Steam®, Valve's leading platform for digital content distribution and management.

Beginning April 9, THE LAST REMNANT will be available for purchase via Steam, which makes PC games available online to more than 15 million users worldwide. An action RPG from the makers of the FINAL FANTASY® series, THE LAST REMNANT will be the first Square Enix game to utilize Steamworks and be distributed via Steam. Square Enix will continue to add to its roster of games on Steam, providing users with instant access - after purchase, they can download the game immediately and start playing. Pricing will be announced at a later date.

"We are excited to offer the millions of Steam customers online access to Square Enix titles beginning with our major action RPG, THE LAST REMNANT," said John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix Inc. and Square Enix Ltd. "Square Enix is committed to delivering the best quality titles to PC gamers and distribution on Steam is one of the many steps we are taking to increase accessibility for fans in North America and PAL territories."

Once players have a Steam account, they can sign in from any PC to access their Steam-distributed Square Enix games. Because games are associated with their account and not their computer, players can get lost in the world of their favorite game anytime, anywhere.

"Square Enix is a fantastic addition to the Steam lineup," said Jason Holtman, director of business development at Valve. "We are thrilled that Square Enix chose to bring its diverse portfolio of titles to Steam and know that our customers will be ecstatic to hear this news."

Considering it looks like this is a rebrand of this board, I would imagine $25-30.

Yeah that looks familiar :p

I hope the price will indeed get that price, I'd love a new keyboard. I don't need one, but I still want it :p

Who on earth put that thing in the bottom right corner? Anyone who uses the numpad for anything will spend their days either muting their Winamp or going deaf.

I really dont like the look of that. It looks clunky, cumbersome and poorly made (from the pictures) Would think that people would rather go for something slicker looking than that for an MMPC :confused:

Was looking at that thing that's probably a volume control - and wondering that if it were somekind of mouse direction thing, with buttons for it on the same side, a lock to turn off all keypresses and it'd be an excellent lounge-style wireless effort. For using ur pc on ur hdtv. Put it to one side with the keys locked - awesome.
